Cherokee Nation citizen Shawna Baker of Tulsa was sworn into office as the Cherokee Nation’s newest Supreme Court Justice at the W.W. Keeler Tribal Complex in Tahlequah.

Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr. nominated Baker to the Cherokee Nation Supreme Court and the Council of the Cherokee Nation confirmed Baker’s appointment during a Council meeting held shortly before the swearing-in ceremony.

Baker joins former Justice Stacy Leeds and the late Justice Angela Barker-Jones as one of only three women to serve as a Supreme Court Justice in Cherokee Nation history.

Baker earned a bachelor’s degree from John Brown University, a master’s degree in biological science and a law degree from the University of Tulsa, a master of law from Columbia University, and a master of law in taxation from New York University.
